We started at home but after 2 1/2 days of contractions and about 2 hours of sleep it seemed clear that Abby was being held back by something so we went to Presb. Hosp. in Allen. Our wonderful midwifes, Joyce Nelson and Rachel Hale, and our great friend and Lori's "breathing coach" Nici Parker, stuck with us and after getting an epidural and some rest Abby, who had her cord wrapped around her made a smooth entrance after two pushes.

Abigail Ann was born at 4:07 PM on 8/13/10 and weighed 7 lbs., 9 oz. She was 20.5 inches long.

Yours in Jesus,


  1. What a blessing and protection from God. That is exactly how big Hannah was! Glad she is here and God protected her.
